Kev Munday and Forest Gallery hosted Kev’s first large exhibition in London in 2022. Titled ‘Playtime’ the exhibition showcased a wide range of paintings, sculptures and playful objects such as a football table and darts board.
Kev Munday creates positive, vibrant artwork inspired by people watching and the every day. Exaggerating and celebrating the ordinary, Kev aims for his art to appeal to all ages and make the viewer think and smile at the same time.
Working with a wide range of mediums including paint markers, spray paint and brushes, his often-simplistic naïve artworks take inspiration from art-forms as diverse as kawaii graphics and huichol yarn paintings.
Kev has created artwork for brands including Walt Disney, Graham & Brown Wallpaper, Fracture Skateboards and Uni-Ball. He was recently named in an article by The Telegraph as one of five ‘British Artists To Invest In’. In 2017, his art continued to grow in popularity across Europe, with exhibitions in France, Belgium and The Netherlands and collections being presented at Art Up Rouen and Lux Art Fair.
Recent press features include BBC News, The Metro, The Big Issue and London Live. In May 2019, Kev Munday’s painting ‘Family’ was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
Forest Gallery are pleased to work closely with Kev Munday as one of the very few galleries worldwide exhibiting his artwork and can organise commissions for any special pieces or requirements.
